JESUS WAS NOT MARRIED
Recently, an article has been going around referring to a book someone wrote. The book apparently says that Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords, was married.
There are also foul videos on YouTube.com that say that Jesus Christ was a reptilian, too.
All of these statements and false beliefs are nothing but hogwash. I certainly don’t believe it.
The Truth about Jesus Christ once more lies at the foot of the cross upon which He died for the sins of all mankind.
Jesus was set apart by His Father in heaven to be holy and pure before Him.
Jesus was in complete and total obedience to His heavenly Father and submissive to His will, in all ways.
Jesus was born of a virgin, so even His earthly birth was in the purest form. He was not conceived in sin. His birth came from the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Because Jesus is the Son of God. Joseph was just His earthly father.
Jesus spent a mere three years or so in ministry. What free time He had He, most likely, spent praying in the mountains and hills or in the synagogue. Scripture never says that He rushed home to dinner, so He could be with His family, although he may have gone to his mother’s home to help out occasionally. Scripture doesn’t really say. However, when He sojourned anywhere, his apostles were with Him, and He usually went to someone else’s house, not His own. In fact, Scripture says that the Son of Man had no place to lay His head. (Luke 9:58, Matthew 8:20) If He were married, then He would have had a house to go home to, wouldn’t He?
JESUS WAS HUMAN BUT SET APART
Jesus was tempted in all ways, as men are, so that He could more easily relate to what human beings experience while on earth. The Word of God says that in all ways He remained without sin. Even if He experienced lust, He overcame that feeling, but I doubt He ever married in order to ease His suffering in this matter. He prayed against it and overcame it. That was always how our Lord operated. Prayer is and always has been our weaponry against the enemy and his tactics. (Hebrews 4:15)
While being tempted by the enemy in the desert for forty days and forty nights (Luke 4:1, 2), Jesus always used the Word of God against the temptations the Adversary brought against Him. He overcame all of these temptations. (Hebrews 4:15) He kept Himself pure and holy before God.
Many believe that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene. I don’t think so. I believe that, once Jesus delivered her from seven evil spirits, that she was exceptionally grateful to Him for freeing her from the bondage she was under. I believe that she and Jesus became very close friends after that. But I do not believe they married. She was just a follower, a friend who believed and trusted in Him. She had experienced Him firsthand to be God. She loved Him, yes, but I do not believe she married Jesus. Jesus loved her, as He loves us.
THE ANSWER LIES AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS
Had Jesus married, I believe He would have made sure that His wife and children, if any, were taken care of following his crucifixion.
While Jesus was hanging on the cross, His mother, Mary, and His beloved disciple, John, were standing at the foot of the cross. Jesus, in His loving, responsible way, turned to Mary and told her, “Woman, behold your son.” He was referring to John, his beloved disciple. Then He looked at his beloved disciple and said, “Son, behold your mother.” (John 19:25-27)
Knowing He was to die, Jesus gave the care of His mother, Mary, into the hands of John. John was chosen to take Jesus’ mother into his care for the rest of her days. I am not sure what happened to Jesus’ siblings, or why they didn’t care for Mary. Regardless, there is no indication that a wife was present or that Jesus worried about her or any children. If so, then He would have made provision for His wife and children at that point, as He did His mother. Mary Magdalene was present at the foot of the cross. There is nothing to indicate that Jesus made provision for her care, as He did for His mother. If He was married, and married to Mary Magdalene, would Jesus not have had someone care for her as well? If He didn’t plan in advance for His mother’s care, then it seems to me that He didn’t do that for any wife or children either. Probably because He was not married nor did He have any children.
Jesus knew in advance how, where, and probably when He was going to die on the cross. He did not plan in advance for His mother to be taken care of. It happened at the foot of the cross. If Jesus had been married, then would He not have made provision at that time for someone to care for His wife as well? And any children He may have had? Since He had no place to lay His head, clearly He never went home to anyone. Because He had no home.
SATAN WILL DO ANYTHING TO DECEIVE US
Do not believe the lies of the enemy against our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The AntiChrist and his followers will do anything to destroy or distort the Truth about Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ was pure, holy, and blameless before God Almighty. He was the Lamb chosen at the beginning of time, to be the pure and holy Sacrifice necessary for man’s redemption from sin. Jesus was spotless and set apart by God the Father. Jesus may have felt lust, but He never gave into it. He was human, after all, and subject to everything the rest of us are. But I doubt that He ever married as some would have us to believe. A submitted sex life gave more power to Jesus Christ to fulfill His ministry, His destiny, laid out from the foundations of the world. As believers are commanded to be holy, so was Jesus holy in all His ways. And without sin.
Even today, if anyone desires to be a deliverance minister, for example, to be able to cast out demons, that person must keep him or herself pure and holy as well, free of sexual sins. Deliverance ministry is a difficult ministry and requires both spiritual and physical cleanliness in order to overcome the enemy. If a person is filthy/dirty in the spiritual realm, then that person changes in a negative way because unlawful sexual activities affect the soul more than any other sin. Therefore, demons will not be afraid of that person when he or she tries to cast them out. I have heard that, in Africa, many ministers are bed-ridden because they tried casting out demons when their spiritual lives were stained with sexual sin. It is also said that the moment a minister of God dabbles in fornication, adultery, or any other unlawful sexual activities, then their nature in the spiritual realm changes into that of a mad person.
Jesus Christ had a powerful ministry. So no, I do not believe that Jesus Christ was ever married, nor did He engage in fornication or other unlawful sexual sins. He submitted HImself fully and completely to the will of His Father in heaven That means his sexual life as well. He remained and still remains pure, spotless, and holy before an increasingly wicked, evil world.
Anyone who tries to make us believe otherwise is nothing but a liar and a follower of Satan. (John 8:44)
THE BRIDE OF CHRIST
Scripture refers to the Bride of Christ. In actuality, all true believers are friends of Jesus Christ. When He returns to establish His Kingdom here on earth, it is then that we, His friends, will be raptured into heaven, when the seventh trumpet sounds. It will be Jesus who will decide if we are worthy to join the Bridegroom, if we are worthy of invitation to the wedding feast.
It is believed that true believers are the Bride of Christ. Not so. The new Jerusalem, the holy city, is, in actuality, the Bride of Christ. Believers are referred to in Scripture as Jesus’ friends, as John the Baptist referred to us. (John 3:29)
Since Jesus refers to us as His children, His friends, then I would find it hard to believe He ever married while on earth. He never made mention of a bride other than what is referred to in Scripture: the Bride of Christ. The holy city of Jerusalem.
Since God shows no favoritism, it would also be difficult to believe that Mary Magdalene or any other woman was married to Jesus. (Romans 2:11) Otherwise, would He not have set her apart and favored her specifically with His blessings, time, and favor? I doubt it. Even now, it is the true children of Jesus Christ, those who trust in Him, who receive His favor and blessings. He does love all of mankind, the wicked and the righteous, and the rain falls on the wicked as well as the righteous. (Matthew 5:45 KJV) He shows no favoritism, per se, to any one particular person. And Jesus commands us to show no favoritism to others either. James 2:9 says favoritism is, in fact, sin.
If Jesus married any human, especially Mary Magdalene, don’t you think He would have favored her above everyone else? Or any other woman he married? This only convinces me that Jesus loved her and everyone else the same. He did not select one special woman to marry. Mary Magdalene was but a friend. Otherwise, He would probably have favored her above all other women. Only Mary, his mother, was favored, chosen to be His mother. But even she may have not received any special favors or honor because she was the mother of Jesus. He loved, respected, and cared for her. But God treats us all equally. There is no favoritism, no distinction because of who we are. I do believe, however, that Mary may receive special rewards when the time comes.
So, to me, this is all just common sense. But you are free to decide for yourself.

25Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto His mother, “Woman, behold, thy son!” 27Then saith He to the disciple, “Behold, thy mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” (John 19:25-27 KJV)
